Cold case: Kade Hall

Learn about the death of Kade Hall, and assist Victoria Police with any information you may have to help solve the case.

Homicide Squad detectives are continuing to appeal for information in relation to the murder of Kade Hall in 2002.

The 24-year-old Croydon man was last seen alive in the Croydon area around 10pm on Thursday, 28 February. 

It is believed he was meeting up with his drug supplier. 

Family and friends of Kade reported him missing to police on Saturday 2 March, stating they had lost contact with him and feared for his safety.

His body was located in bushland just ten metres from Mount Dandenong Road in Kalorama on Friday 15 March.

He had sustained fatal gunshot wounds to his head and neck.

An extensive police investigation has so far failed to identify those responsible for Kade’s murder, which investigators believe occurred on or around the evening of Thursday 28 February, 2002.

A number of people of interest have been identified during the investigation however no one has ever been charged with Kade’s murder.

Investigators believe his death may have been motivated by his involvement in trafficking heroin in the outer eastern suburbs.

Detectives believe that it is possible there are still people in the community who know what happened to Kade and who was responsible.

A reward of $100,000 was initially offered for information in relation to Kade’s death, however this was subsequently increased in 2009 to $1 million.

The Director of Public Prosecutions will also consider an indemnity from prosecution to anyone providing information that leads to the conviction of the person or persons involved.

Detectives believe the passage of time may mean someone in the community is now able to come forward and tell investigators what they know about the young man’s death.

Police have released two photos of Kade and urge anyone with knowledge of who is responsible for his murder to come forward.

Anyone with information that could assist investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report via the Crime Stoppers Victoria website.
